Advising Appointment and Quick Question Cancellation Policy:  If you have made an advising or quick question appointment and can no longer attend, the Office of Career Strategy prefers that you cancel 1 business day in advance. This will allow another student to fill that spot.  If this is not possible, please cancel at least 2 hours in advance of your appointment through Yale Career Link. If you need to cancel within 2 hours, email the advisor directly from your appointment confirmation or search their contact via the staff list.  Thank you for your help!
